    I'm doing an app review for seeder (yeah I know I'm about 6 months late) and want to test out performance and loading times in some apps.
    Please point out apps that you've foudn to be noticeably laggy at times.

    TIA

    I agree also, it has to be Hangouts. It is very slow. Another one would be Androblip, it is very laggy too.

    The Play Store, accessed on either the web or my droid, takes forever. Clicking ‘My Apps’ is a death sentence for my weary old browser, partly because it wants to show me all the apps I tried for a half a minute two years ago.

    I don't know if it still is, but the Weather Channel app was already really bad, especially when trying to use the radar in motion.

    I didn't think about stumbleupon (only used it once) and Amazon, but I'll try to include those as well as the weather channel, and a few more.

    Cheers everyone!

    (video will be coming soon, but British weather isn't helping me)

    Update: In case you were interested in the review, I am no longer doing a video, but I will still be doing the review, and I'll be posting my findings later on.

    edit: article is now online, and for anyone interested in seeder, I found that it didn't make too much of a difference, and that a decent overclock had better results.
